Alan Freeman - Wants List!

bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm

IMPORTANT

One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!

Excepting those items listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for Audion articles, or our various planned Italian and French books, etc. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. But, please do not offer us anything that is too crackly or of poor quality.

Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: utle2uk@btconnect.com with your wants list? We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I've generally swapped physical CDR's. But now can cope easily with swapping online. I usually use Google Drive which is a far more stable way of uploading and sharing. So, if you want to share an album and/or swap, my Gmail address is: xylem777@gmail.com or alternatively you can upload via Sendspace or whatever other service you prefer.
Notes about online swapping: 320kbs mp3s are satisfactory for most things, although flac is preferable (especially for CD copies). Lower resolution rips, i.e. 128 or 256kbps are only acceptable for extremely rare old vinyl transcriptions or bootlegs. For anything that is originally a quality digital source I require better. As I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!

 

Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Adrian Wagner - DISTANCES BETWEEN US
(Atlantic: LP) I have an original LP which is now well-worn & crackly (badly worn sizzle on the Mellotron too), so I need a recording from a mint or ex+ LP, not from the Music Suite CD which is remixed & ruined! The downloads I've found (inc. the Mutant Sounds one) are from the remixed CD (note: instant clues are the added electronic percussion and sound effects)!!!
Stomu Yamash'ta - IROHA: TEN/CHI
- I have the RVC: 2LP, but would love to get a flac rip of the Japanese CD reissue. I can't believe how obscure the CD's are of this! All web links I've found are dead!

Anyone know if these are worth getting?...

Magic Hour - WILL THEY TURN YOU ON OR WILL THEY TURN ON YOU
(Ché Trading Che 20 or Twisted Village) 1995
The Muffins - LOVELETTER #1
(CD Contorted CON6) is recordings by the reformed line-up but earlier with a good few old pieces, so could well be good, although I didn't rate the two Cuneiform albums afterwards

In fact, if you have any live recordings or radio sessions (of fine quality) that may be of interest, let me know!

 

Research...

German/Krautrock things we still need to hear...
see "Crackin-needed" file

French 1970/80's acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...

Claude Alvarez-Pereyre - EGRÉGORE (RCA PL 37285) 1979 ex Alpha Ralpha that could be of interest
info at: http://www.encyclopedisque.fr/disque/58347.html

Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 - Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections
rather unexciting based on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lA39CullClo

Petites Annonces - LP (BB 33.33) 1981 - quite nice jazz-fusion with Verdeaux brothers based on the 1 YouTube track, so I wonder if the rest is any better, or is it all this level? An mp3 of this will suffice.

Metabolisme - Highway Over You / Tempus - 7" FLVM 4517 (1979) non LP single - b-side playable at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/metabolisme45t.htm = nice instrumental track

L'Association Des Musiciens Et Artistes De Touraine Presente "live in Tours 1977" (Disques Barrier 11001) 2LP 1977 - Les Anges Noirs / Avalanche / Deep Feeeling Blues Band / Novelo "Tandava"

Clues and more info welcome. Some of the musicians we know as members of bands, but not solo.
Some may never have released anything!...

Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui qui l'dit qui y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche.
Atome - Les Herbes Bleues 7" - pop/prog? Musea: demonstrates numerous musical qualities, as evidenced by their album "Les Herbes Bleues" published and released in 1978. It makes us think of a picturesque Progressive rock, similar to PENTACLE or CARPE DIEM, also see FRUUPP.
Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit
Bestiole - MLP Dans les marais/Le voyageur/Rue du chevau fug
Sylvain Carrel - Look over the Nile - electronic rock?
Distance - Moshi, Moshi (Mercury 6313.143) 1981 - some sort of fusion? www.discogs.com/Distance-Moshi-Moshi/release/2349214
Dynamo - jazz-rock tinged with humour 1979

 

Ena - LP Ena (Fika FK 1002) 1980 Café Mozart - Outre tombe = Post Punk "cold" Wave --- various artists!
a Discographie Du Rock Francaise this is a compilation with 5 bands performing. Full listing is as follows :

"This recording is a compilation of five very musically different formations. MEGOT and CORRESPONDANCE play an energetic, muscleband rock, close to hard rock. HARALD prefers an insane urban rock, CAFE MOZART plays slightly new wave rock and DAMOCLES proposes a rebellious, declamatory rock which sometimes evokes ANGE or MONA LISA."

 

Fmr - Identité/Le serpent - 7" MAGIC M0019 (1980) punky pop based on 30 sec sample at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/fmrband45t.htm
Galigaï - French jazz, and not very good based track "Games" (1982)!
Claude Guillan-  Anita/Je me fais tout petit - pop, it seems
Imbroglio - SAUF LA PANTOUFLE - free-jazz, ex Confluence - info:  http://www.discogs.com/Imbroglio-Sauf-La-Pantoufle/release/1795895
Jazz Virus Quartet - seems to be a Didier Lockwood project?
Korman - ?????????
Magicia - IN SEARCHING OF MISTER MONEY (F.R Disques 3001) 1981 - reputedly excellent prog
Master Key - Tears of Love/Oh Salome (Context CTX 105) 1971 - reputedly psychedelic pop
Neophyt - Tout seul tous les deux/Le noir - un rock mélodique dans la lignée de ICARE, bénéficiant d'une emphase vocale ...
Ogoun Ferraille "Jazz Septet" - A CORTO MALTESE - old-timey jazz apparently
Ogoun Feraille - Ogoun’s comin / Samba à la Jef (PES 451 133)
Rackham-Le-Rouge (R 8201) Alain Gautier & others, seems to be pop
Roger La Honte - could be interesting, Uppsala related
Trouble - unknown single from 1977
Wild Beauty Of Sadness - aka WBS seems they just released a single? = pop / mor /easy listening, not prog at all!
Yecta Plus Band (pre Flamen Dialis) same info everywhere "After releasing a 45 in England in 1971..." - anyone got it?

Croque Mitaine - LA CHANSON DU FOU - apparently akin to Malicorne, so should be worth investigating! Found a picture, seems we've had it in the past & didn't keep

Italian research...
see the page: Italian Wants and/or Need To Hear, etc.

p.s...
If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
What do we already know? Check the A-Z list of over 4,700 prog & experimental artists in our UT Web Encyclopedia!

Note: Some items on this page we may have previously had but forgot about. A small front cover jpg may jog my memory!
